Twin Rivers Ranch Restoration Work Party
Saturday, May 18th 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM
Join us at the beautiful Twin Rivers Ranch near Shelton for a morning of restoration work. Since the property was conserved in 2010, about 5,000 natives have been planted on the property to help restore the natural forested riparian buffers along Deer creek and Cranberry creek.
On May 18th we’ll be traversing the whole property, giving much needed TLC to the plantings.
This is a rare opportunity to see this special property firsthand! Sometimes called a “mini Nisqually,” the Twin Rivers Ranch property spans the entire head of Oakland bay, with multiple tidal sloughs winding through Sitka spruce forests and emergent wetlands.
For more information and to RSVP, email our Stewardship & Restoration Coordinator Guy Maguire at firstname.lastname@example.org
We have many opportunities for the community and students to engage in the work Capitol Land Trust is doing. To ensure your volunteer/intern experience is the most rewarding possible, we will collaborate with you to design an internship or volunteer job description that best matches your interests, passion and academic goals. The potential projects listed below are samples of the kind of work you can engage in with us. Contact us for more details!
- GIS/Database - Working on updating our property database and our property maps using ARCGIS and/or Microsoft Access software.
- Volunteer and outreach events – We need help crafting outreach materials, recruiting and engaging volunteers, increasing our web presence and social media impact, helping with logistics and planning for tree planting events, invasive removals, etc.
- Restoration planting – Help with a planning design for the planting of some 2,000 plants this fall/winter with WCC crews
- Stewardship - Participate in our monitoring program which involves visiting conserved lands to document the condition of the property, and to track the human and natural changes on a property over time. This involves taking photopoints, using a GPS, and recording ecological and property data to be compiled into a complete report.
- Baseline and management plans for new properties - help create these documents which includes gathering data on important and/or critical species, making maps, visiting properties to take baseline photos, and more.
- Survey properties for endangered/threatened species
- Help with our outreach and fundraising program, including help with planning our Conservation Breakfast, Summer Gala and other events; writing content and helping with design of our quarterly newsletter.
